  • CAVI Collection: Vienna, University 53d.
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of RF skyphos. From Italy. Achilles Painter. Third quarter fifth. "Parthenonzeit" (CVA). 450-445 (Oakley).
  • CAVI Subject: Unexplained subjects: Fr. 1: [heads of] Athena and Talthybios, facing (the last figures on the right side, near the handle root). Fr. 2: head and chest of a man to left, wearing pilos and himation: Telamon, or Ajax, or Teucer, and Aegina. Frs. 3-10: bits of drapery, and on fr. 4 also floral and tongue pattern.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Fr. 1: above the man: Θαλθυ[βι]ος{1}. Fr. 2: above the man: [--]να :* Τελα[--]{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so Kenner in CVA, 38. AA had red Θαλθυιβος, which is repeated by Kretschmer. {2} Kenner suggests either [Αθε]να or [Αιγι]να for the first name; Beazley cites only the latter, which is more likely as the contracted form of Athena is fairly rare. For the second name, Kenner restores Τελα[μον] or Τελα[μονιος], i.e., Telamon or Ajax. Oakley reads Τελα[μον] or Τελα[μονιος] referring to Teucer rather than to Ajax. {3} I mention only the inscribed frs.
  • CAVI Comments: 14 frs. Oakley lists 10 frs., all carefully described and figured. He notes on p. 12 that this is the only use of punctuation by the Achilles Painter.
